Lovely stay at Villa Borboleta

  • 4 of 5

This was our family's 3rd visit (a party of 6 adults) to Quinta da Balaia & staying in a villa owned by José Carlos. This time we stayed at Villa Borboleta between 8th & 15th October 2016. We found the villa to be well equipped & suited our needs. It has a large comfortable living/dining area, a serviceable kitchen complete with dishwasher, washing machine & small kitchen appliances & 3 large double bedrooms all with en-suite facilities. The villa was maintained well & the pool area was also well looked after with room for al fresco dining, ample room with 6 loungers for sunbathing & cooling off in the pool. The pool was cleaned twice during our stay & housekeeping called once in mid-week. The washing machine was very handy as we were able to launder our towels & clothes when required, letting them dry in the warm Algarve sunshine. On the night we arrived we couldn't get into the safe, however, following a phone call to Carlos the problem was rectified the next morning when Carlos himself arrived & sorted the issue. We also had difficulty with the downstairs WC but again this problem was rectified very quickly by Carlos. The only drawback was needing taxis into Albufeira so would recommend car hire if you intend to get out & about much during your stay. All the financial transactions were completed easily & in a timely manner & the villa safety deposit was refunded inside 2 days of our return home. All in all we had a good stay in the villa & would certainly recommend it. We will be contacting Carlos again when we next visit the Algarve! The Kenny Family, Northern Ireland. Obrigado Carlos!

What a fabulous villa !

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this villa and had a brilliant holiday here. The rooms are spacious and each one comes with its own bathroom which we found incredibly useful and there is even an extra loo downstairs too ! The whole villa is beautifully decorated and well set out including a well equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster, cooker, dishwasher (really handy) and even a washing machine plus plenty of crockery and utensils. The lounge area houses a lovely big dining table and sitting area which leads out to the pool area.

The pool itself was lovely and wonderfully private with beautiful foliage growing around so that the whole area is not overlooked. I must say that we did actually spend most of our days just lazing around the pool - it was idyllic. If you wanted to venture out then there's a little mini-market just around the corner next to the complex restaurant and communal pool area - vey nice and friendly people too !

We went to Praia d'Oura by taxi which cost around 4 euros and spent hours browsing the many shops bars and restaurants plus the beach there is well worth a vist.

This is one of the best holidays we have ever had and I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone.

The whole booking was dealt with so professionally by Carlos who was so helpful and even arranged a lovely welcome pack ready and waiting for us when we arrived.

My only regret about this holiday is that we didn't book for longer as we only had a week her but I am already saving for next year. !

First impressions good

  • 4 of 5

Villa could do with some updating as its looking rather tired inside. Cooker only as 1 shelf found cooking a bit trying on site super market shut as it was early season review. Stating nearest super market only 3 mins away near 5-6 mins better to go to Guia where large supermarket and shopping centre also Iceland shop with butchers inside aldi and lidl in Albufeira overall.we had enjoyable time found Carlos very helpful with quick response when needed

Excellant Villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was lovely. The best features about this villa were the huge garden, pool and barbeque. The villa itself was spacious and en-suite bathrooms (with bath) in each of the three bedrooms. The location of the villa was also very good and approximately 15-20 minutes walk to the Strip area where you will find all of the very good restaurants and bars. We would have no hesitation in returning back to Villa Borboleta. Jose Carlos was also very helpful.

An amazing week in an awesome villa

  • 5 of 5

Having arrived expecting the villa to be nothing like the photos, we were amazed and thrilled to find Villa Borboleta far exceeded all our hopes. It was clean, everything worked, the wifi was fast! and there was more space than expected. The welcome pack was a nice touch and Carlos has been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Thanks for everything Carlos.

We're about to book again for next year (as are my in-laws!)
